Second Round of Screwball Film Tourney: Day 2 Update

So now there are only three close matches after day 2. Yesterday there was five matches that had leads of fewer than 5 votes. All that changed today. The Thin Man has twice as many votes over The Palm Beach Story, leading now 20-10. Yesterday it led by only 3 votes. My Favorite Wife has a slender 3 point lead over The Lady Eve at 16-13. Yesterday they were dead-locked at 10 votes each. You Can't Take It With You is tied with Ball of Fire at 14 all. Yesterday Fire was down 11-9. And one of the top seeds, My Man Godfrey leads The Awful Truth 18-15. Yesterday  Godfrey was actually down 13-12. Now the other five matches are now looking like blow-outs. His Girl Friday has exploded over The Philadelphia Story to the tune of 23-11. Bringing Up Baby is up over Midnight 21-8. To Be Or Not To Be is crushing Theodora Goes Wild 20-7. And the biggest blow-out without question is taking place with It Happened One Night vs Merrily We Live. 31-0. Yep, Merrily We Live has yet to receive a single vote! Voting continues through Friday evening.
